How to get over a breakup and stop hurting?

Its been three weeks since my ex broke up with
me. We've been in contact everyday since usually via snapchat we've even met up a couple of times. But he's trying to be my friend and tells me he doesn't want to lose me as a friend. But talking to him everyday and seeing him isn't helping me at all it still hurts like crazy. I'm still so in love with him. I keep suggesting to him that we maybe cut all contact for a couple weeks or so but I can never do it. I really do still want him in my life but I just can't seem to be a normal friend to him right now. I just miss him so much it makes me sad if I don't hear from him even if it's just once throughout the day. We used to see each other every day and then suddenly one day to just not seeing each other at all is a huge change. Please help me with any suggestions you have on how to get over him and make the pain go away?
